My State Rep takes up life issues

I knew there was a reason why I liked this guy….

With heated debate reflecting a deep social divide over issues of life and death, a Minnesota House committee on Tuesday passed a bill that would require health-care professionals to provide food and water to people incapable of making care decisions for themselves.

Rep. Tim Wilkin, R-Eagan, said he became interested in the legislation after watching the controversy that erupted last year over the Florida case of Terri Schiavo, who died after her feeding tube was removed. Her case sparked nationwide protests, and involved Congress, federal courts and the U.S. Supreme Court. . Wilkin said he wanted to avoid that kind of "circus."

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
